Fall Family Pictures

Another week another excuse on why my blog is once again put on the back burner. I swear its a good excuse, mommas making that money honey. LOL. OK, not really but I have 26 sessions this month alone!! ahhh, Feeling so blessed, but stressed. wah. Anyways I also have another reason to feel extremely blessed; my amazing and beautiful family that I just adore!!! (obvi.) 
We had family pictures taken a few weeks ago and lets just say it didn't go as I had (fully) visioned. Harper had just gotten her first ear infection only days before, she was crabby and she is also going through a MEGA "if your a stranger don't even think about saying anything to me otherwise I will scream" moment. Not even exaggerating. As soon as my friend/photographer Brett said "Hi" to her, she was dunzo. She literally screamed and cried, like full on trembling cried 85% of the session. No matter what we did she just cried harder and harder. I just had to tell Brett, just take the pic because its not going to get any better... ahh. I wanted to also burst into tears after all my planning of outfits and props for weeks before.. (Another first world prob right?) So there it is, that's our story of these photos of my sweet fam and I really am head over heels in love with these photos!! Even though Harps is not her usual self, I feel like that's what pictures are all about. Capturing specific times in your life and I know I will always look back on these gorgeous images and giggle about how hysterical she was over getting her picture taken. ;) Funny thing is, when I was around this age I had a meltdown too every time I would see a camera so every pic of me is either crying or hiding my face! haha. Like Mother like Daughter. 
P.S.- I love this new tradition of family pics every few months and I am already planning (in my mind) our next spring session. :) Check out our last session HERE

Harper's second Halloween and other randomness from October

Oh My Busy!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't even know where to start. I haven't blogged anything for awhile and I feel so behind on all the posts I have been wanting to write. I have never been this busy in my life. OK, so taking care of a crazy toddler is busy enough right? Now add on that I have been shooting and editing like a mad woman! I seriously am blown away by how many people want me to take their pics, like, really you want me??? Is sorta how I feel. Somebody pinch me. I really see my dreams of being (cant believe I'm saying this) SUPER SWAMPED BUSY, BOOKED OUT FOR MONTHS, busy bee photographer. eeeek! That really is where I want to be someday so its a start right! Anyways, I know no one cares about that kind of stuff. You just want to see Harper's happenings. I'm getting to that... Poor boogs is sick with an ear infection at the moment so our week has been lazy and slow at the home front. I of course spoiled the crap out of her today because I felt so bad for her so I had to get her BOO the cutest dog in the world stuffed animal that she swoons over every time we see one and of course some Target goodies and a trip to gap the last two days for Gap cash and a friends and family coupon today. OK so she could really care less about the clothing purchases but whatevs, its still for her!! ;)
On to the camera roll goodies from the last couple weeks!
First lets start with Halloween. I totally failed on taking pics of her cute actual trick or treat costume but I did capture these ones of her Belle costume the day before and they make up for the mom fail so, mom win!! HA!
